    Pros

    Good benefits, nice events, fully stocked kitchen, lunch provided, they really take care of you.

    Cons

    The tech team was a very miserable place to be. The stereotypical abusive and cut throat finance work culture is not only tolerated, it's glorified, and unprofessional behavior by middle management does not appear to be seen as a problem even if it causes many employees to leave. Since the tech team is small and there is no flexibility in switching sub teams, these issues cause a greater negative influence over the... broad work environment and will pervade the day to day development. The on-call system is poorly run; every issue, no matter how small, is escalated to the highest level. Mistakes are punished and remembered forever rather than learned from and there is definitely a preference over working showily harder, not smarter. Contractors are also awkwardly excluded from meetings and events, often it feels unnecessarily so. Overall, a proudly non-inclusive work environment indifferent to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be more strict on not tolerating poor behavior by middle management. Move away from blame culture to be one that is more team oriented. This isn't survivor, there doesn't always have to be someone voted off the island.
